The present title Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology is inherently an advance subject. It consists of an integration of many varied disciplines, such as biology, microbiology, environmental biochemistry, physical science, economics, and political science. This book attempts to elicit the complex problem of understanding and monitoring the pollution impact on living targets on the one hand, and using cost effective remedial measures on the other. The book has been written specially to meet the challenging requirements of understanding environmental toxicology. Efforts have also been made to discuss the various types of environmental pollutants and their adverse effects on man and on to the environmental. This title is an attempt wherein, the author has tried to incorporate old and recent aspects of environmental toxicology and microbiology. It has been the humble attempt of the author to provide information on the various dimensions added in the modern technology. Students and professionals interested in environmental microbiology will find the background information and details they require in this one convenient source. The book brings out the realities about the damage being inflicted on the environmental and our exploitive attitude to nature.
